All last week I felt frustrated, sad, and hopeless. I wanted to delete my spark page and start all over. I didn't want to admit that my weight had crept up to 161 (weigh-in as of Friday). All my weight loss efforts down the drain. But I conf... Read more

Friday is not my weigh-in day, but this morning I stepped on the scale and saw... 158!! I finally broke the plateau! For over a month or so I'd see 161-159, so when I saw that I'm down 1 pound I got excited! Besides focusing my weight loss onl... Read more

It's that time of the year- back to school! I'm nervous, really nervous. I'm not nervous about the academics, but how the stress of school will affect me. Last school year I gained ten pounds because I did not prioritize what was important- m... Read more

Thank goodness this day is over! (Note: I'm blogging Pacific Time) For some strange reason I woke up feeling sad and hopeless. I had emotions I couldn't explain. I think I had a nightmare, yes hopefully that was it. Honestly I was feelin... Read more

I finally made a vision collage... better late than never. I was not sure what exactly to put on it. I only had two magazines at the time so I put several celebrities' bodies who match my height (like Shakira) and also put some phrases. Reali... Read more

I've been yo-yoing with my weight for more than a month (159-161), and it's time to get serious! I've been tracking foods and workouts, but my lack of planning/dedication is what's setting me behind. I had a hard time finding cardio workout and... Read more

Quick update from July: I did not make it to 155 as I wanted to for the Real Madrid soccer game. I was at 159 when I went to the game; and although I was only 4 pounds away, I was still glad to have seen a loss. Okay, I hate blogging ab... Read more

I've been on WW (Weight Watchers) for about a month or so. Last week was my weigh-in and I was upset about gaining a pound. So this week I tracked every single item I put in my mouth. I did pretty good on tracking calories instead of WW po... Read more
